Mom Do's

My fellow blogger over at Redpunzel does some awesome mom dos! (Just thought I'd pass her along to all of you asking for more mom dos. I will get some of my own up soon though!)



Did you know that if your computer has a virus and you connect your camera you can get it onto the camera? I learned that the hard way! Last week my computer was running sort of funny so I ran the scan and had a few viruses on it. Got the computer cleaned up but now I can't use the camera! So now every time I insert the memory stick or try to plug in my camera my computer freezes up! Annoying! So now I guess I'm going to be getting a new camera, again!

This one turned out to be pretty cute! I did a basic puffy braid but instead of straight parts I used squares/L parts.

Start by parting the hair off to the middle. Take a small square on the top of the head. Make an L part around that to form the next square.
Keep going with your L part.
Now, Section off a square (the L part now goes the opposite way) and pull that into the puffy. I used a clip to hold it the rest of the hair out of the way.
Do one more the same way.
Repeat on the other side. You should still have the back part down.
Pull it all into a pony tail.


Finish it off with a cute flower clip!

Don't forget about the contest! Comments for that must be left here!

So sorry I've been such a slacker on getting this started! I really meant to do this for the first of the year, sort of a new year/new hair do'er thing; but anyway here it is!

Ok, so every mom that does hair know there's a few basic essentials to any hair do. A good spray bottle, a few good combs, and a ton of elastics.
This awesome giveaway includes:
  • 12 pack of combs, essentially just about every comb needed for styling!
  • a spray bottle
  • a pack of 500 elastics!
Rules:
Anyone is eligible to win, even other hair bloggers! You must be a follower to enter. We're going off of comments so the more comments you leave the greater your chances of winning are! Comments must be a full sentence and they must make since! Friday night the giveaway will close and I will choose one comment from Random.org to be the winning comment. The winner will be posted on Saturday!

Good luck!

New Videos!

I made a few videos from posts here for my youtube.

What do you think?



Half Double French Braids


This is a relatively easy do. First section off the hair, leave the front sections (the part that will be braided out) and clip back the back section. This just keeps it out of the way. Braid the front parts and secure with elastic. I took half of each pony and pulled them to the back of the head (sorry, I forgot to get a picture of the back) Then we curled it up to add a touch of elegance.

Twisted Pony

Remember These Twists? Z really loved the braided pony I did in her hair last time and wanted something similar. So we twisted the top part only and added it to a pony tail. She loved it and I liked that it's not the same thing we do all the time.

To start, pull the back section into a pony tail. Section off the top part and make your twists. If you need instructions on making the twists you can find them here.
It might take a bit of hairspray if the hair isn't wet enough to hold them in place. As you can see ours are a bit loose, no worries though, you can just tighten them up as you add it to the pony.
There you have it! A simple and elegant "twist" to that plain old pony tail!

And don't forget about the upcoming giveaway! Here's a hint. It's perfect for those new to doing hair, but of course everyone will want to (and be able to) enter!

Braids and a bun

Ok, first off I'm sure that I've seen this exact hairdo posted somewhere so if you posted it on your blog before (or know who did) please feel free to leave a comment with the link to your original post.

Also, been a busy morning so please excuse the messy breakfast table.

Take the top section of hair and make a part all around. Be sure to pull it into a tight pony tail.
Now, section off the outer part and make into small ponytails all the way around. Be careful to make a straight part and keep them all even.
Keep on going. (I find at this point it's easiest to put the main pony into a hair clip to keep it out of the way)
Make sure you get the underside as well.
Split the pony tails in 2.
Braid it down far enough to connect to the pony tail.
When all braids are done connect them to the pony tail.
Remove the elastics from the tips of the braids and form it into a messy bun.
You might want to spray the bun to keep it looking cute.
Here's the best front view we're getting today.

Yesterday's do

Before we continue with yesterday's do I'd like to know what you think of my Do of the day. I've set up a poll to the side. Please take a second to submit your answer! Do you like my do of the day? Should I continue with it or scrap it? Thanks!

Now on to the bloggin' business!

Yesterday's do was pretty simple, just a single puffy braid on the top.
As you can see she was more interested in her cup of milk than in having her picture taken.
We did manage to get one side view though!

Sunday Do

Yesterday's Sunday do was a simple hair net! It took us about 10 minutes to do it because she's still so wiggly! I know this one has been done on other blogs as well so I didn't do any step by step instructions on this. Let me know though if you want a video on how to do it.
She was totally posing for the camera in this last one!
